Kareem Reid (b. August 27, 1975) is a point guard in the National Basketball Development League. He played college basketball for the University of Arkansas Razorbacks. Reid is also a well known street-ball player in the Bronx, playing in the Rucker Park league.
Prep career 
Reid led St. Raymond High School for Boys to New York City and state championships as a junior in 1993. One of the top rated point guards in the country as a senior, Reid was named a McDonald's All-American, and signed with the Arkansas Razorbacks, the 1994 National Champions. Reid participated in the 1994 U.S. Olympic Festival, helping his East team to a silver medal.
Collegiate Years 
Reid was forced to sit out the 1994-95 season at the University of Arkansas because his ACT score was disputed by the NCAA. Opening the 1995-96 season as a freshman, Reid led the Razorbacks to the Sweet Sixteen of the 1996 NCAA Tournament, and the NIT Final Four as a sophomore. He finished his Razorback career as the all-time leader in assists with 748, and third all-time in steals with 251. Reid averaged 11.3 points, 5.7 assists, and 1.91 steals per game for the Razorbacks. Reid was named to the All-SEC Freshman Team after the 1995-96 season, and was named 2nd Team All-SEC as a sophomore.
Professional career 
Despite averaging 10.3 points and 8.7 assists at the 1999 Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, Reid went undrafted by the NBA. Reid went on to play in several professional leagues in the United States and overseas, including a stint with the Harlem Globetrotters. In 2003, Reid signed a free agent contract with the New Orleans Hornets, but was released prior to the start of the regular season. Reid played well during his time with the Hornets, causing Baron Davis to comment that he was as difficult to guard as any NBA player, and wanted him to remain on the team. After his release from the Hornets, Reid signed with the Asheville Altitude, leading them to the NBDL championship in the 2003-04 season. Reid averaged 12.0 points per game, and finished third in the league with 6.7 assists per game. He joined the Arkansas Rimrockers for their inaugural season in the American Basketball Association, leading the league in assists at 9.0 per game. Reid was named league MVP and earned the Championship Game MVP in the Rimrockers' championship win after the 2004-05 season. On February 23, 2007 Reid was signed by the Albany Patroons of the Continental Basketball Association. Reid also played for the team while it was in the United States Basketball League. Since 2008, he played for JA Vichy in France, but left the team in January 2011. He now plays with Hyères-Toulon Var Basket in France.
Street ball career 
Reid has been known by the nickname "The Best Kept Secret" since his years on the playground hoops scene in the Bronx. In 2004, Reid led the Terror Squad team owned by Fat Joe to their third consecutive Entertainer's Basketball Classic championship. Reid scored the final nine points in a come-from-behind victory over a California team that featured NBA players Baron Davis and Gilbert Arenas, and was named the game's MVP.
